Rockin Childhood Favorites
Simone attended the Manhattan School of Music in New York City for four years. During that time he received a Bachelor of Music Degree and Masters Degree in Music Education. He has performed with big bands playing music from that era, orchestras performing the classics, marching bands, jazz ensembles, Latin and pop music combos. He holds permanent teaching certificates from the states of New York and New Jersey and holds lifetime membership in the National Education Association. He spent the majority of his teaching career in the New Jersey Public Schools. This music is great entertainment for recess time at school. Many parents have commented about singing along with their children when in the car, on long trips and at children's parties. Parents and teachers alike have commented on the fine exposure the children are getting about jazz which is a great learning experience while still having fun. Youngsters sing, dance, enjoy and learn all at the same time. Parents have told me that they have enjoyed listening to this album as much as the children.
